    How did Crisis affect the Batman and the Outsiders continuity and where does that fit into the canon? For the most part, it jibes with the post-crisis Year One continuity, with a few oddball exceptions, such as Robin noting that he’s been Robin for 11 years (he’s 19, leader of the New Teen Titans and not yet Nightwing; a young Jason Todd pops up but is not yet Robin) and a reference to Superman’s strength coming from Earth’s comparatively lower gravity during a fight with Geo-Force. The original run, though, ends around the time Crisis happens; did B&tO get wiped out by Crisis or did it get grandfathered in? Some of the year 10 stuff you mentioned indicated that events such as Batman’s leaving the Justice League and forming the Outsiders is still canon… so I guess my questions are what made it and what got nuked?

    Thanks!

    • Hi. This is from a footnote on the site, but it gives your answer pretty well, I think. In a nutshell, the first 31 issues of the Batman & The Outsiders series take place BEFORE Crisis on Infinite Earths. Therefore, most of these first 31 issues are simply pre-Crisis reference materials (which get added in as skeletal notated versions based upon dialogue references in later definitively post-Crisis Outsiders issues. According to my research, only the issues I’ve listed in Year Ten (as REFERENCE NOTES) are the stories that have been canonically referenced in the Modern Age. This actually makes sense because everything’s been mega-compressed in Year Ten, meaning the Outsiders don’t debut until late November, meaning further that their abridged Modern adventures leading up to the Crisis all happen in quick succession (in the span of a little more than a month).

      Batman and the Outsiders Annual #2 and Batman and the Outsiders #28-32 were all written around the time of the original Crisis, making things confusing as to their placement. However, since we know for a fact that Looker doesn’t join the Outsiders until after Batman leaves the team in the Modern Age, logic dictates that anything prior to Batman and the Outsiders #32 (where Batman quits) has to be pre-Crisis. Some sources list Batman and the Outsiders Annual #2 and Batman and the Outsiders #28 (both published in December 1985) as the first post-Crisis Outsiders stories, but this cannot be true.
